The IES Research Training Programs in Special Education are intended to prepare individuals to conduct special education and early intervention research that advances knowledge within the field and addresses issues important to education policymakers and practitioners.
The Methods Training for Special Education Research program supports training of current education researchers to maintain and enhance their research and analysis skills to conduct rigorous and relevant research focused on learners with or at risk for disabilities. Supported training should respond to the ongoing development and adaptation of methods concerning the design of early intervention and special education studies, analysis of the data collected, and practical interpretation and dissemination of the results.
IES is not specifying the methodologies to be addressed. However, applications to provide training in the following areas are encouraged:
Other methodologies may be proposed with a documentation of the need for the training and how it will advance the field. IES is interested in projects that provide researchers with targeted, relevant training they can immediately apply in their work rather than supporting broad methodological education of the type provided by certificate or degree programs.
In FY 2021, IES will not accept applications to conduct training related to single-case design.
